The annual Maadi Cup at Lake Ruataniwha in Twizel saw the Under 15 Eight and Octuple crews advance to their respective A finals on the first day of racing. With the competition fierce, most heats meant only the winner to qualify for the A finals. Six crews qualified for A finals on day two, with the Under 18 Eight finishing in second place, just one second behind St Andrew’s College. With more crews competing in repêchages across the tournament, the School had seven crews in A finals and 5 crews in B finals, the best result for the squad since 2021.


The Premier Tennis team started off their National Tournament campaign against Hamilton Boys’ High School, winning 4-2 after super tiebreaks. After a straight set win against Tauranga Boys’ College, the team had to rally after the doubles pairings lost in super tiebreakers, before playing Westlake Boys to decide semi-final seeds. Despite some good passages of play against some higher ranked opponents, the team went down 5-1. The team then played Te Kura in the semi-finals playing with grit and determination, before facing Westlake Boys’ High School on the final day to finish fourth overall.


The Triathlon squad competed at the New Zealand Secondary Schools Championships in Tauranga and achieved some fantastic results despite crashes on the bike legs of the team and individual races. The squad were still able to win both the Under 16 and Under 19 races, with an individual Bronze for Form 6 student Caleb Wagener in the Under 18 race.


During the New Zealand Secondary Schools Championships in Palmerston North, the Premier Volleyball team had wins against Freyberg High School, Trinity Catholic College and Bay of Islands College, and losses against St Andrew’s College and St Bernard’s College to finish third in their pool.

At the North Island Secondary Schools Championships, the Premier Water Polo team had wins against St Peter’s College and Tauranga Boys’ College, and a loss to Westlake Boys’ High School.

After another loss to Rosmini College, the team played St Kentigern College, winning 13-6 and finishing seventh.


The Yachting squad competed at the Auckland Secondary Schools Teams Racing Regatta. Two Grammar teams had a strong start on day one of racing to finish second and third overall. Day two saw light and variable conditions, both teams winning all of their races. There were light winds on the final day of racing meaning no sailing with final placings decided on round robin results. This saw the Grammar Gold team take out the title being top in their round robin table, and the Grammar Blue team placed third. These results showing the depth of young Yachting talent.
